ASIAN 3319

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

There are 39 countries, 35 dependencies, and 6 disputed territories with populations of less than one million. There are 27 countries and one dependence with populations between one and five million. These places are located on every continent of the world. What historical contexts led to the existence of these polities, what are their roles in the modern world, what are their futures and why is it important to know about them? This course is both a survey and an analysis of them and of how the world looks from their vantages; it aims to open a view of the world much larger than the common focus on a limited number of large and medium-sized countries and to see how these small countries reveal a great diversity of human experience and  help us to understand the contemporary world.

When Offered Spring.
